People tell me my love for trees is contagious

About Zach

As a wood artist and craftsman, I tell stories with wood bowls and vessels so you can connect with the wild ancient forests of Alaska right from your home and office.

John Muir once said, “The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.”

And I couldn’t agree more.

But most people don’t have the good fortune of living and working in the forest as I do.

So, it’s an honor and privilege to be the artist who brings a piece of the forest wilderness to your everyday life.

But I couldn’t run a successful art business without the talent and hard-work of my lovely wife, Jenn. 

Jenn’s a self-proclaimed marketing nerd on a mission to connect people to nature.

Around here: she’s in charge of all things marketing – press, design, web, schedule, social media, etc.

Jenn’s built and run operations for several internet businesses, but this is her first venture into putting one-of-a-kind pieces of art into people’s homes.

Like me, Jenn has a deep reverence for wilderness and shares a passion for helping deepen people’s appreciation for the trees she lives amongst. 

Together, we run ZachLaPerriere.com—our mission/passion based business dedicated to deepening nature-lovers connection to the trees and forests that inspire them
